SUCCESS: Marcia Dixon with her award at the Legacy Gala
THE VOICE'S Soul Stirrings editor Marcia Dixon received a Lifetime Achievement Award for her media work in mobilising and informing faith communities at the first ever Legacy Gala, held at the Decorium in Wood Green, north London.
Dixon is one of the longest-serving journalists at The Voice.
Prior to the advent of the internet and social media, the Soul Stirrings column was a must-read for many people within the black Christian community and it continues to provide a window into the black Christian community.
“I feel honoured that my journalistic work for an iconic newspaper like The Voice has been recognised at this inaugural event to recognise those people within the black community who have blazed a trail and in the process left a legacy.”
The Legacy Gala was organised by Blacksox, A Few Good Men, The Society of Black Lawyers and Operation Black Vote.
Other recipients included EastEnders actor Rudolph Walker, Leroy Logan, former leader of the Black Police Association, and Marlon Palmer, founder of Kush Films.
